    HA! I saw someone else's version a minute ago! What paint colors did you use for this? That's what's been keeping me from building it. i think I have the original article somewhere but really doesn't touch on the paint. Awesome work!

    if I remember correctly,  the blue was duplicolor and the white is tamiya pearl white

    Coming along pretty nice there Jason.  Love work your doing.

    thank you both for your kind comments should have another update soon

  3. hello all, 

    back again with some updates. mostly making new things in CAD that I've made it styrene. 

    new tin-work with bead rolled details and wheel tubs. 











    also made some turbo bullhorns 









    thats all for now. 

    some parts are just setting in place. all gaps and alignment will be done on final fit.

    my favorite bodystyle... my favorite style of racing... and expert fabrication. LOVE IT!

    (I'm new here and the last model I built Parts by Parks stuff was a relatively new company) but now I have an itch to build...

    same here! thank you.

    This is the most amazing detail I have seen.  You make me wanna do a odd car to build into a pro mod

    thank you. pull something out and do it 

    I've learned alot with this build. being my first attempt at a tube chassis car. now I've got a line up of uncommon cars to do when this one is finnished

    Superb craftsmanship Jason.  Keep her going brother! -Mark

    thanks for your kind words my friend

  5. update on the impala 

    I've re-made the firewall to allow more clearance for the turbo/down pipe assembly. still need some finishing but it made a big difference. 


    I've also made progress on the drives haft tunnel and safety tube as well as the drivers seat cage.






    been playing around with the dash too. without something there it looks odd.

    the dash looks nice with the body in place but when the body is off it looks really bulky.  not really sure what ill do with that yet. 





    thats all for now. 

    as always tanks for lookin and comments are always welcome

    Glad to see the Impala back on the bench Jason! 😊  It would be a shame to let this beautiful project gather dust... Obviously, it will move some when it is completed! 😁

    thanks Francis! 

    no plans on pushing this one aside just life has gotten in the way. now after the holiday season I can get back to this project and look forward to making more progress

    This is a fantastic build so far! I love reading posts like this to learn about new techniques and where to get certain aftermarket parts and pieces. Thank you for sharing! I do have a question. What is your method for bending the styrene for the cage and chassis? Do you localize heat it? If so, what tools do you use?  Thank you in advance. I will definitely be following along on this build.



    thank you for your wonderful comment Dave


    when I bend my styrene rod, I use a candle. I hold the part 3.5 or 4 inches away just enough to make it bend without distorting the diameter or stretching the plastic. it takes verry little heat.

    hope this helps!

    Wow! Absolutely amazing work! For one getting back into making models, this is a gold mine of information and top notch building! Well done!

    thank you for you kind words Sal!

    Love the engine Jason, i need one of those for one if my future builds, keep doing that great work man

    thanks marcos! I've got a couple on hand.  if you'd like one let me know

  8. made some small progress last week. printed up a set of mirrored turbos and some mandrel bends. made a new headder collector and assembled the headders, turbos, bov, and intake tubes. the headders look much better to me and are closer together. ill just need to do the bullhorns on the body to finish them up









    as always thanks for lookin

    That is one beautiful 3d printed resin engine, love it man

    thanks marcos  I appreciate it!

    So, I rolled out of bed and thought I'd just whip up an engine today in CAD........yeah, that's it..........SERIOUSLY Jason, that is pretty darn sweet not only that you can do such work but do it so quickly.  You're very talented.   Love the position of the turbos too.  The entire car looks great and has a realistic look about it that is hard to get in 1/25th.   congrats. tim

    hey Tim, it took some time to learn but really happy with the results. I have learned enough to fall down the rabbit hole of 3d. I appreciate your comments watching you and the others build these cars is really inspiring and always gotta get out of the comfort zone and try new stuff!



  10. well I've gotten carried away with this project i decided to try and make an engine in CAD took a couple weeks and a few test prints but I'm really happy with it. I'll have to fix the valve covers because they have no bolts.















    also changed from a power glide to a lenco






    thanks for lookin!

  11. i was really stuck on the front suspension so I remade the front suspension to be more realistic. properly lifting it instead of just blocking up the crossmember. made new strut towers and crossmember still need to lake the tiebreaker for the lower control arms and a skid plate.








    still needs a little cleanup but I think it will be good.

    thanks JC!

    Hi Jason!

    Like on a real car, tight quarters call for "packaging" magic. Looking at your exhaust/turbo combo, that makes the grade, bravo!


    thank you CT always appreciated

    thank you Tom

    Your new valve covers are very beautiful Jason!  They're 3D printed, I guess, if so what technology do you have FDM or SLA?   What do you use as CAD software?  You have a nice twin turbo setup by the way, as others have mentioned. ?

    thanks Francis! they are 3d printed. I'm using a resin 3d printer had have been doing work with auto desk fusion 360. ended up making a whole new engine for twin turbo should have the final parts finished soon. may end up doing a swap
